you're crazy, I love that repeated Keith line! :)
and it's 2-3 minutes, not "5-10"

I'd just like to make a case for this Scarlet>Fire played less than a week after the much-talked-about Cornell show:

5/13/77

http://www.archive.org/details/gd77-05-13.sbd.miller.9393.sbeok.shnf

This is a similar type of '77 S>F, but gentler and more beautiful than its Cornell counterpart. There's less repetition from Keith, a VERY subdued vocal from Donna that is SO much easier on the ears, and while the transition into Fire is quite brief, not a note is wasted.

The transition is also unique for this time period in that it doesn't "melt" into Fire so much as it starts on the beat with Phil very much leading the way. The Fire that follows is controlled, sustained, and gorgeous.

In all, I think this is one of the most underrated Scarlet>Fires of ANY era, certainly for '77, and is better than the Cornell combo.

Check it out.

I dunno, keith does a huuuge repetitious one noter in the estimated prophet from 10-02-77.. It's amazing though.. I know it's not a transition.. but it's cool :D if you haven't listened to that.. go hear it out.. just "dah dah dah dah dah dah" ad infinitum


edit: not 10-02.. i can't figure this out.. does anybody know?! it's a 77 show I'm pretty sure..
